02 Jan Tips on How to Execute a Wedding Sparkler Exit
I ran across this great blog from Open Aperture Photography title Tips on How to Execute a Wedding Sparkler Exit and asked if I could repost it here. Bob and Amanda Mackowski are a husband and wife photography team in Eastern NC. I was so impressed by their portfolio and their creative flare when it comes to taking photos! They have a true talent when it comes to capturing unique, beautiful pictures!!!
Here is what they posted on How to Execute a Wedding Sparkler Exit:
We certainly don’t mind helping (after all, that’s what we do) but I wanted to spread our knowledge so that other people can be prepared.
Make Sure the Couple is Waiting to Walk Through –The bride and groom should be waiting behind a door/curtain/tent or something else and be ready to go. If it takes time to find them and the sparklers are lit, they won’t be lit by the time the couple starts walking.
Send the Couple –Once everybody’s sparklers are lit, it’s time to send the couple walking down the line.
You Can Also Do It Walking Into the Reception – While it’s called a sparkler exit for a reason, you can also do it going into the reception. The reason that most people do a sparkler exit instead of an entrance is because it typically isn’t dark at the beginning of a wedding reception. If your entrance will be dark, do both! That’s what Jon and Hannah (below) did.
